You can use the People Module to display and organize the members of your department or organization. You can add new people, edit current people, and delete members of your organization who no longer work for you.
Adding A New Person
In the first row of links above your people module, click "Add Person." There are five fields associated with each person: NetID, Area, Field, Position, and Department. Fill out these forms, and click "Add Person." That's it!
But I Don't See The Correct Area, Position, Category, or Department!
Not to worry; you have control over those! If the Area, Position, Category, or Department that you need is missing, click on "Add (Area, Position, Category, Department)" and fill out the form. The only required field is "Name." Once you click the "Add (Area, Position, Category, Department)" button at the bottom of the page, your entry will be available on the "Add Person" page.
What If I Need To Edit An Existing Area, Position, Category, Department, or Person?
Perhaps your organizational structure changes, or perhaps you notice a typo. No worries. In the second row of links above your people module are "All Departments," "All Areas," "All Positions," "All Categories," and "All People."
Any edits that you make in the first four links will show up on the "Add Person" page. Those changes will also show up on your live site as well.
You may also edit or delete existing people in your directory. Click on "All People," find the person whose information you want to edit, and click "Edit." Make any changes that you need to make, and then click "Update."
- When I edit the information for a person, I see "Update from LDAP." What does that mean?
- When you create a new person, you fill out their NetID. The People Module then asks the LDAP server for any information for that person based on the ID. You can ask the LDAP server for any new information, and you can save that information in the People Module, if you like.
- When I upload a new headshot, the image doesn't update! (Or, the image looks grainy!)
- The People Module automatically adjust profile headshots to 200px wide. If the headshot that you have is too tall, please crop some of the height off of the image. Also, if you have a small image, it will expand to 200px wide, and that resizing could cause the image to appear grainy.
